Field of Fireworks Tie Dye Beach Towel


  • Tulip® One-Step Tie-Dye Kit™ - Carousel
  • White terrycloth towel, 100% natural fabric
  • Large plastic bucket


  1. Use rubber bands, found in the kit, and pull up 4 inches of fabric into a tube shape and place rubber band at the base of the 4 inch mark. The larger amount of fabric the larger the sunburst. Repeat banding process randomly over the towel to create the sunburst pattern.
  2. Dampen towel and wring out the excess water in the sink.
  3. Wearing rubber gloves, add water to dye bottle. Replace cap tightly. Shake until dye is dissolved.
  4. Place towel into bucket and randomly squeeze dye colors. Use full-strength for intense colors. For a lighter shade of color, add more water using extra bottle if needed. Check to make sure dye has penetrated.
  5. Wrap towel in plastic surface cover. Let set 6 to 8 hours.
  6. Rinse under faucet to remove all of the dye until the water runs clear.
  7. Remove rubber bands. Fill washer to large load setting with hottest water suitable for fabric and a small amount of detergent. Wash separately for the first few washes.

This looks like a fun project. I am assuming you apply different colors randomly to the various 4 inch tube shapes to create the look of the towel in the photo and that the pail is there to catch the overflow as you go along, otherwise, the blue and reds would come out a mixed grey. I love the colors used in this project and the cute cat looks comfy on this pretty towel! Thanks for a creative and clever project idea!

SO cute! I would never think to tie dye a beach towel, but now I definitely want to.
